2000 Mercury Sable Dohc Cyl 6 Misfire- Help Please?

Here It Is. I Bought A2000 Mercury Sable For My Daughter, Check Engine Light Was On When Bought Yesterday. I Ran The Codes And Got A Cyl 6 Misfire, Replaced Coil Reset Codes With Scan Tool. Check Engine Light Came Back On And Retest Showed Same Code. Car Runs Fine, But Once Ina While Idles Rough When In Gear At A Stop Runs Rough For A Few Minutes After Taking Off Then Clears Right Up. Seems Fishy. It Is Intermittent Prob. Could A Spark Plug Do This? Pulled Plug Was Clean And Looked Good. I Read That Maybe A Fuel Injector Could Be Bad? Any Help Is Appreciatted, Muy Daughtwer Is Leaving For California On Fri. With This Car, Would Like To Make It Right Quickly.

sounds like to me that you may have a bad Coil Pack causing this.

Need some more info on the Engine...Size,dohc,ohc, etc...can you please respond?
